I've decided to do the UCA relocation and I'm supposed to drill the new holes 17/32", but I've found that Lowes and Home Depot don't sell the right sized drill bit. Where can I go to find such a beast?

Thanks

Remember when drilling, you want to GRADUALY work your way up to 17/32" Don't try to hog it all out at once. Otherwise you stand a good chance of the drill ripping your arm off when it suddenly jambs :: Not to mention ending up with a nasty looking hole :p

Thanks for the tip! I've been researching this project for a while now and that seems to be a common recommendation. It must be a good one.

I'm off to Sears now for a drill bit...

Sorry dude, Sears doesn't carry such a drill bit... at all.

I had to go to Tacoma Screw, they had it in stock but it was kind of expensive.

Thanks anyways...

That REALLY surprises me...I'm shaking my head in disgust right now.
C'mon Sears, WTF? ::

Sorry for the crappy lead Dan. ::

Hey, no problem...

You previously gave me some really really good info on where to find weld thru primer, seam sealer, and spot weld cutters. I was able to have them in my hands shortly after you gave me the info. You were my heeerooo...

Sears wasn't a bad suggestion, though. The person at Sears sent me to Tacoma Screw. So I guess you were right after all... kinda... sorta... at least they fixed me up.

Thanks
